When we drum together, we work as a team one beat at a time. The experience of drumming together helps remove social barriers in a non-intimidating, and fun atmosphere. Your staff can relax, gain enthusiasm and the necessary confidence to fully participate in other ‘team’ activities.

You know from watching the kids, 'drumming together' is simple, fun, accessible, and effective! Drumming together inspires connection and celebration, provides participants with an instant sense of joy, accomplishment and gratification, boosts confidence, employee enthusiasm and positive morale.  It is a cutting-edge tool for team building, reconnecting with self & others in these disconnecting times, leadership training, and staff well being that will leave your group feeling relaxed, uplifted and inspired!

Staff Wellness Drumming

Suit: Stress relief and Mindfulness for Teachers

Duration: 60 min

Description:

There is a growing body of research on the therapeutic effects of group drumming. Ground-breaking studies show drumming benefits the immune system, stress levels, and mood. It also shows that repetitive drumming changes brain wave activity, inducing a state of calm, and focused awareness. Just what teachers need to get through the everyday pressures, demands, and expectations of their teaching role.

When we drum, we engage both hemispheres of our brain simultaneously. This is meditation. Uplifted, alive, and present in the current moment. Through this rhythmic entrainment, your team will learn to quiet the distraction, regain focus, and calm breath and mind, promoting relaxation, a healthy mind, and a new pathway to social belonging.
